banana breakfast cookies

When I have lots of very brown bananas, this is one of my favorite recipes to make! They’re so quick and easy to throw together, and I can grab a couple on my way out the door! These are also super kid-friendly, so make their wishes come true by giving them cookies for breakfast! You don’t have to tell them they’re healthy.

How to Make 3 Ingredient Breakfast Cookies

Preheat the oven and line a baking sheet with parchment paper. This is important because the cookies tend to stick. If you don’t have parchment paper, be sure to spray the pan with non-stick spray.

mashed banana

Two large bananas should equal about 1 cup of mashed banana. Mash the bananas until smooth and then stir in the oats and peanut butter. You can add additional mix-ins, if you like!

Bake for 15-17 minutes until the cookies are set!

Scale

Ingredients

  • 1 cup whole grain oats
  • 2 very ripe bananas (about 1 cup mashed)
  • 12 tablespoons peanut butter (see note)

Instructions

  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  3. Mash the bananas, then combine with the oats and peanut butter.
  4. Drop rounded tablespoons onto the cookie sheet.
  5. It should make about 12 small cookies.
  6. Bake for 15-17 minutes. These won’t really brown, and they won’t spread, but they’ll be chewy and delicious.

Notes

I like using 2 tablespoons of peanut butter for a stronger flavor. But if you wanted ot keep the calories down, you can use 1 tablespoon.

breakfast cookies

These will not be a decadent “dessert” cookie, but they do taste good, and they’re great for a snack on the go. I called them breakfast cookies because I think they’d be excellent in the morning, but I just ate them as a snack. If you wanted more of a dessert cookie, you could add some chocolate chips, walnuts, or even just more peanut butter. As the recipe is written, each cookie only has about 50 calories. Adding in chocolate chips would add a few calories, but they’d still be pretty healthy!
